Recipe by Aunt Poppy
This is a wonderful pecan pie which I make each Thanksgiving. This recipe was given to me by a friend who owned a bakery which was noted for this delightful pie. I have scaled it down to make one 9" pie. I am always asked to make this pie all year round but I only make it for the holidays because I want to keep it special.

- 3 jumbo eggs, slightly beaten

- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 7⁄8 cup white sugar
